Defining the Chemistry of Biosecurity

Virkon™ S

Virkon™ S has continuously set new benchmarks in many important aspects of livestock production biosecurity for over 30 years, from improved handling and operator safety profiles, to proven efficacy in real ‘on-farm’ conditions and application flexibility for surface, equipment, vehicles, water and air disinfection. Add to this the excellent stability and long shelf life of the powder-based formulation, and it is easy to see why governments the world over keep stocks of Virkon™ S for emergency disease-control purposes.

Virkon™ S is continually being assessed to specifically address the practical biosecurity requirements of modern-day farming and livestock production.  The powerful peroxygen-based chemistry in Virkon™ S’ formulation provides for a continuously evolving broad spectrum of efficacy against current and emerging disease-causing organisms with specific focus on viral pathogens such as; African Swine Fever (ASF), Foot & Mouth Disease (FMD), and specific strains of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (AI or bird flu).

Biosecurity in a single pack

Virkon™ S offers farmers a convenient, multipurpose biosecurity system all in one pack for a wide range of applications:

  • Surfaces
  • Equipment
  • Vehicles
  • Footdips
  • Aerial disinfection
  • Water delivery systems

Industry-leading chemistry recognised by governments worldwide

Virkon™ S

Virkon™ S is a scientific breakthrough with performance characteristics that have defined biosecurity standards. Not surprisingly, Virkon™ S is the choice of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and governments worldwide to secure biosecurity and strengthen emergency disease control (EDC) contingency planning. The Australian and New Zealand governments’ AUSVETPLAN is probably the best regarded EDC reference source. Virkon™ S continues to be the only branded disinfectant referred to in the  AUSVETPLAN, stating that “Virkon™ S is a modern disinfectant with outstanding virucidal properties.”
